Pre Market data


DSchenk

Question

Hi,

I'm using ProRealTime with my IG Spreadbetting account and am wondering if there is any chance to access Pre Market data for UK shares?

e.g. can I run a screener showing me the biggest gappers before the market actually opens?

Best

Thanks WillA

Are there any other tools or websites available which show pre-market data?

I tried to find an answer on the internet today, but it seems like nobody is providing pre-market data for the London Stock Exchange. Is this maybe not supported at all as it is common in the US stock markets?

Does anybody know if you sign-up in IG for the Level 2 data access if you get pre-market data?

(Level 2 access: provides a live price feed and extensive market depth, where applicable)

 

How do people trade gap strategies in the UK?

I know you can put your orders in pre market so you should be able to see indicative bid/offers etc. That's from 7.50 > 8am. is that what you're referring to?

Maybe better to post in the strategy section. You will prob get more/better replies.

Hi Cryptotrader,

so in the USA the brokers seem to show data during the night all the way until the market re-opens again. So you already know where the stock will open before it actually opens. Where IG stops showing any data and starts again the next morning at 8am and all you see is a big gap, but no information about per market highs and lows, etc

Is this a thing only in the US or also possible at the LSE? How do you identify an overnight gapper before the market opens in the UK?

Hi @DSchenk,  the NYSE and Nasdaq have an extended hours quote service but I don't think LSE do.

You can find them on their respective web sites and that is where brokers and commentators are getting their data from. I think the nas has pre-market and extended hours data while nyse just has extended hours data.

Yahoo Finance also lists recent out of hours trades and price movements so might be worth checking there?

    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
    • Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.
